    DONE M&P Shield 1.0 w/ holster, case & extra mag.

    Need a low cost yet quality carry gun? I am offering my Gen 1 Shield with everything pictured for $200! I have about 1,000 rounds through it, everything is nicely broken in yet it has been carried more than shot. Meticulously maintained as well I would much prefer payment via Zelle. All...

    @Edwardteach72, you get your scope yet?

    Finally addressed the baffling lack of a .22 pistol in my small collection.

    Ruger Mk IV hunter blued version 'cos I am not particularly fond of shiny guns. I had been planning on getting the Target model but when I saw this blued Hunter model in my LGS I opted for it instead. It has the fiber optic front sight which is nice and the fluted barrel and aluminum frame is a...

    Let's play a "What would I like to do/see post NFA" game.

    And for the purposes of this discussion all you back pillers can take that pill and shove it up your ass, make it a suppository. Anyways- First things first I would take the pistol brace off the Galil Ace "pistol" and put on a proper stock and replace to angled fore grip with a proper vertical...

    The Remington Rolling Block, and related single shot musings.

    Does anyone here own a Remington Rolling Block, or one of the reproductions? I recently watched a lengthy and entertaining video of the Rolling Block rifle on C&Rsenal channel and I have become fascinated with it. Interesting history and mechanism, the action was described as being a...

    Rethinking the trash cannon (How to Shoot the Shockwave w/ Demonstrated Concepts)

    I find this pretty interesting. Judging from the comments on this video many folks are missing the point here.

    Aero Precision to produce new bolt gun

    Looks cool, like the green color, like the minimalist design. 3 locking lugs, 60° bolt throw, uses Savage type prefit barrels, modular chassis. Didn’t say what magazine it would use, I assume an ACIS pattern. All seems pretty good to me, can't wait to hear more about it.

    Open carry in Walmart still a thing

    In small town PA anyway. Spotted a fellow, out with his lady, open carrying a G19 on his hip. While wearing a mask which I found highly incongruous. I was surprised to see someone open carrying in a Walmart after that incident with that guy what got banned for life for open carrying. I...

    Federal's .30 Super Carry. All that is old is new This is basically a recreation of the 7.65x20 French Long cartridge, which is what the French called the .30 Pedersen cartridge when they adopted it as their service pistol round. The .30 Pedersen was developed for the Pedersen device which...

    The AR-15 is still the most modern rifle there is

    It's uncanny how simple updates in materials and configuration have been able to keep this 60 year old design on the cutting edge. Everytime a new rifle is released, the Bren 2 for example, I think "it's nice but is it better than a AR........ no I don't think it is."

    Of 1911s, boycotts and comprised ideals

    O have long wanted a 1911 though it's never been a high priority. With S&W 686 Pluses been so hard to come by I have been thinking of skipping over to a 1911 for my luddite handgunnery fix. The model that has always fit the bill best for me was the Springfield Armory Range Officer as I wanted...

    I shall be experimenting with shelf stable prepping foods tomorrow

    I wanna find out if you can make an at least somewhat palatable grilled ham n' cheese with this stuff. The butter at least is said to be extremely good. The other items are more subjective though I love the B&M bread toasted with butter so..........

    That match looks so frggin' cool! If you can perform well in conditions like that you are set.

    NYPD 12lb trigger possibly discontinued. I remember an article in which a NYPD officer discharged 15 shots at a suspect only to hit everything but including multiple bystanders. Perhaps this will help with that.

    Happy customer

    Just received 500 rounds of 9mm 124gr +P HSTs from these folks. $557.79 shipped (to PA). Not bad, $1.10 per round which is a pre panic retail price. I've actually seen them go for more than that yet in the middle of the Trump Slump no less. I ordered noon Wednesday they shipped an hour later...

    Just renewed my PA RESIDENT permit today online

    Via my phone. Apparently the backlogs in my area have been worked through- applied for renewal online, received approval 30 mins later and scheduled an apt to pickup my card tomorrow. Can non residents apply online also? Things are running smooth again it seems. Also- FWIW, there is no way...

    Holosun QD mounts, do they suck?

    Just bought a 515 that was unbelievably on sale on Midway, it's on my doorstep now, waiting for me. Now I have heard from a few different sources that Holosun's QD mount is not the best, does anyone have any experience with them? Would I be better off replacing it straight off? Ordinarily I'd...

    Anyone else seeing a massive influx of new shooters on their range?

    I certainly have. Everytime I go there are multiple newbies out there. Some have questionable taste in guns, some splurge on the good stuff, some over splurge on really good stuff they don't really need. Saw a younger guy with a Les Baer for "home defense". First time owner too. None of em...

    Beretta will be importing the legendary Manurhin MR73! Will this be the first time these excellent revolvers have been imported factory new to this country? Shame about the price but considering the quality of materials, manufacturer and the features I think the $3,000+ price is justified. Unfortunately I...

    Death of the surplus firearms hobby

    @Fightingfish, watch this before you start in on your surplus scrounging. I agree with him too. I once recommended the Spanish FR-8 as a potential option for a good classic military style bolt action. However a recent perusal on Gunbroker shows them going for almost $1,000 these days. The...

    Spyderco Paramilitary 3 Lightweight sprint

    I was fondling the Delica 4 I had purchased for my step father when I realized that I really like Spyderco's FRN handles....... So I got this. In a sprint run version. I have a disease. It is crazy light and has a fantastic action, feels like it's on ball bearings even though it's a bronze...

    Yet another P320 unintentional discharge

    I'm sure Glock is very grateful that they didn't have to deal with instantaneous internet dissemination in the 70s and 80s when their pistol had similar issues.

    Native Video Hosting?

    Has there been any further thought given to this as a paid feature? I'd pay a reasonable fee for this service and there are all kinds of videos I'd like to do for the forums. I find using a 3rd party host to be somewhat tedious. Or is there a better/easier servive than Google Drive to use?

    Clatsop County, Oregon to vote on whether to become most free county in Nation

    Absent regulation I wonder how much new manufacture belt fed machine guns would cost? I'd love to add one of those new Knights Armament constant recoil guns to my collection. Hell, absent regulation I would put one on a pintle mount in a pickup bed.

    3 days carrying the Glock 19 in a Galco Miami Classic

    I have never used a shoulder rig until now and I quite like it actually. I have carried this way at work for the past three days over long hours, 12 hour shift on Friday, and found this setup to be very comfortable and convenient. I wear it under a regular button up shirt and nothing else...

    Well better than 90s German barrels that have been beat on.

    Good price on .223 55gr Gold Dot Very good price for this ammo, excellent for HD/SD and probably a good round for hunting too. The 55gr seems to do well out of short barrels:

    GM6 Lynx .50 BMG bullpup rilfe.

    I have never been a huge fan of bullpups but her eit makes good sense. Putting an semiauto 50. BMG rifle into a form factor that can be effectively shoulder fired is incredibly cool. So if you will all just crowdfund me $12,000 I will let you know what I think.

    Glock is evil, damn!

    Notice the front slide serrations and the lack of the annoying cutout on the front strap. Now I have to fight the temptation to replace my current, perfectly good, G19. And the temptation center of my brain is relentless, ruthless and totally unstoppable. Dammit Glock! This is how Glock is...

    Technical and historical review of the HiPoint pistol. And a side of forensics.

    Really interesting stuff I think. Fascinating insight into not only the technical aspects of the HiPoint product but also insight into the ethical practice of the company and an interesting look into firearms forensics.
